Front axle weight Aspire 44D

Greetings all:
My wife and I Recently ordered a 2023 Aspire 44D from Nashville NIRVC. Does anybody have real world front axle weights on the 44D floorpan? Some things I've read makes me wonder how close we are to the 17000 max gross on the front. Thanks.

I think that might be a typo, or the weight per wheel.

Caught my attention, I was wondering how it was loaded to be that light in the front end.

NIRVC can have the coach weighed. Iíll ask any of the other stores if they have weighed a 23 yet and what the weight might have been.

Thanks Bobby. Ordering a MH from 750 miles away requires a bunch of calls and emails, Thought I'd give our sales rep a break before I hit him up with something else. Debated on the Anthem (W/ 20k lb front axle) but decided for our usage didn't want to spend another $70K. So far, NIRVC has been great to work with.

I dont think that there is any way that the weight reported here can be correct. Pretty sure that is a single tire load or just a bad value or typo.

Also, I'll bet you can find someone reporting that weight and all four corner weights by using the search box at the top of the page. Try entering EMTEGA: four corner weights Aspire or free associate close to those search terms and I am pretty sure you will get a very good close approximation.... might be from a previous year but will not be off by much.........

Gary had a typo in his message change "EMTEGA" to "ENTEGRA" and you will have better results.

Must be getting cold down in the southern part of the country!

I just weighed our 2021 Anthem and front axle has 14,432 lbs and that is with a fully loaded coach with full fuel and 30% Fresh Water onboard.

Thanks Randall : Those numbers sound pretty decent. Some years and 4 motorhomes back we had a 38ft Fleetwood Southward (Ford F53) that was nearly overloaded when it was empty. Going somewhere was like flying a light plane, always watching weight and balance and one extra suitcase would put you over.

Yeah it is the wheel weight on the front axle.

That is amazingly low for an Anthem. What is your total weight? My last weight, not fully loaded, was 16700 steer and 43220 total.

That is impossible. Do you mean the AVERAGE of the two wheel weights, not the total.

No way that is correct Randystu - the front end has to be double that for both wheels. There is no Aspire in the 7750 total weight on the front end. And if by chance the weight is correct, then the back end is way too heavy and you need to have your ride height checked for balance as you tag axel and/or drive axel are carrying way too much weight.

Edit - I see that the later follow-up report is for the front right side - now it makes sense!!
